Dear Brothers and Sisters,
After 35 bargaining sessions with your employer, Stop & Shop, I along with the other Presidents of UFCW New England have ordered a work stoppage at all Stop & Shop stores in New England.
What the company has offered as a final proposal does not adequately fund our health and welfare or pension funds, nor does it provide all employees with an opportunity to grow together with the company.
We all hope that the company will come to their senses and bring back an offer that will be acceptable and reflect the hard work and dedication that all of you bring to work every day.
Please continue to monitor all our social media outlets for updates and for breaking news and alerts, text “SSUpdates” to 698329.
I ask everyone to stay strong and committed and we will all get this through this together.
“Our Unity is our Strength and our Strength is our Unity”
Sincerely and fraternally yours
Timothy M. Melia
UFCW Local 328
